I have been researching and looking into cycling from Mumbai to Goa around mid-December time. I have looked at starting from Alibaug and keeping to the coastal road as much as possible. Ferry crossings at Dhighi, Jaigad, Dandewadi, Devbag and so on until Tiracol.
Has anyone had any experience of this road/route? I know that there are tour companies that run groups of cyclists on this route; however I want to do this trip alone in 6-7 days. I travel light so there is no difficulty in carrying clothing. I’ve had conflicting info on road conditions and general safety, Crazy Guy web site has some good reports, these are few years old. Also a friend of a friend who used to live in Mumbai says I shouldn’t attempt it.
Any info is greatly appreciated.
